Social Responsibility

We focus on production of materials with positive impact on the environment. We are constantly working to minimize the adverse effect of industrial manufacturing on the communities where we live and work. We are responsible for ecological situation in our hometown and home region, where chemical production has been taking place for 160 years. Health & safety, and environmental considerations are integrated into all aspects of our business. All processes within our company run under the certifications and it is responsibility of all employees to find solutions’ leading to it is improvement.

The biggest investment in the modern history of our company is construction of chlor-alkali membrane electrolysis. In the second half of 2016, it will replace the existing but outdate mercury facility, unlike many other companies, a year earlier than required by the European legislation. It will ensure long-term sustainability of our business but will also help with the employment situation in our region.

Documents of sustainability

In the field of production we strive to develop and produce environmentally friendly products. We use modern innovative technologies, eg. new and patented production of epichlorohydrin based on renewable raw resources (glycerine), we reduce our carbon footprint (reduction of greenhouse gas emissions), we effectively treat with raw materials, disposals and energies and reduce the risks to human health.

Our principles are summarized in documents Quality Policy, Policy of Occupational Safety and Health Protection, Major Accident Prevention Policy and Policy of Environment, which can be find HERE.
